Looking forward to hearing your thoughts too, Nathan.
Actually Nathan I haven't even installed SP2 yet.

I'm waiting on a new computer to do so so please do throw out what you know.

Thanks for asking

Hey Jim, a reply to your post has been simmering on a back burner for a few months now - but before I spew it all into the reply box, have you found a solution to your problem?  Bought any gear?  Done any shopping or experimenting?
Before you go that far, get some scotch or gaffer tape and tape a coin to the inside of the bottom hat.  You made me curious so I went downstairs and tried a nickel and a quarter, the quarter seemed to work best.  It adds nothing to closed hats, open hats drown it out, but on a foot splash you can hear a nice little sizzle going on. 

It should be S.O.P. to keep a quarter with a strip of gaffer tape in your stick bag, anyway, I think Bart's talked about using it as a quick and simple sizzle effect many times.

So far I have gotten this response from Orange County (where I live) which doesn't really answer anything:
"Thank you for your message. It depends on the location where you want to set up and play. The County of Orange only has jurisdiction in unincorporated areas. It also would depend how loud you play. There are various ordinances regarding public nuisances based on noise. You may want to check with the city in which you're hoping to play. "

And this response from the city of Anaheim:
"Music can be played in your place of residence as long as it doesn't go late into the night.  There is no curfew we just ask that you be courtesy to your neighbors.  A neighbor can call the police department if they wish, it is their right to do so.  Please do not play your drums in a public City space as you will be asked to leave.  To play in a park for example, you would net to get permission from our parks division, you could also be cited for playing in an empty parking lot as that could be considered trespassing.  Please contact any of the beach cities individually in Orange County for information on playing at the local beaches."

Starting to seem like it's a chase of ask this person and this person and this person for something that is a big grey area of they could cite me if they really wanted to but it doesn't flat out say they will.

Sounds like you have a pretty good deal there Chip.

My apartment complex has very strict noise rules. They want my windows closed even with the electric drums. I heard someone else get in trouble for playing an acoustic guitar on their porch. Guess I just chose the wrong complex for a musician.

Outstanding playing.... Not many percussion people can play those instruments.  ;)

I rent a house, but am lucky enough to have great neighbors. Plus I live across the street from a cemetery. The gal who rents the upstairs is rarely home so that's not a problem either. I have an agreement not to play past 10 PM. The neighbors on both sides of me ride Harleys. I don't gripe about their bikes and they don't gripe about my drums.  8)
